are the torrents legal?

I think yes because a lot of free software use this, like linux..... so, what do you think?

torrents are just a protocol, it depends on the content if they are legal or not. Same with http, you can also transfer illegal content over that.

On frihost we don't want any torrents so all are forbidden (legal and illegal). Direct and indirect linking to torrents and hosting them is not allowed.

torrents are legal. however many people use torrents illegal and abuse the system by sharing illegal content.

therefore, the answer to your question is yes

from the ToS:

Any of the following is strictly not allowed, unless stated otherwise.
Content related to hacking, torrents, peer to peer, cracking, serial numbers, violence and terroristic activities.


So anything related to torrents is not allowed.

torrents are legal but allot of people use them for illegal illegal down loading so.

yes they are legal but some of the content is not.

Torrent protocol and torrents are absolutely legal. They can be used to share completely legal and free files. But if you use them for downloading or uploading cracked games, movies, music, etc. then they are illegal. It always depends on content.

Torrents are a tool. I don't think that is being communicated effectively.

What that tool is used for is the sole responsibility of the user. Torrents are 100% legal just like Usenet is 100% legal. When these are used to distribute copyright material then we have problems.

Guns are legal to buy and own in most places around the US but things change when you start waving them around in public and/or in peoples faces.
